weapons on our troops, we will use everything on you, and they didn't use those particular weapons. secondly, eisenhower, 1953 sent word to the chinese, you stop the war in korea or we take the lid off the weapons we use. we got a truce in six months. third, 1958, war in the taiwan strait, eisenhower says shut it down or it's gonna go up the stairs. in other words, threatening the possible use of atomic weapons, and he made peace all three times. these subtle or hidden threats worked, and he's given up our ambiguity. >> you get the point about ambiguity? he surrendered ambiguity and that's a strategic ambiguity. >> we live in a different world. we don't live in a bipolar world where we worry about some soviet general launching a weapon from mining.
